Another grumble in the jungle!


If you live on The Avenue of any of the cul-de-sacs on some roads off it you will have received a letter from us. It’s about the frequent congestion and numerous cases of inconsiderate parking that leaves many roads in chaos.


Many of you work diligently to keep the verges outside your homes looking attractive, mowing them, planting flowers and shrubs and arranging barrier to discourage people parking on the grass. Sometimes in vain!


Some of you have have contacted us to express your concern about parking virtually blocking streets. Residents in anything other than a small car have difficulty in navigating the narrow gaps and getting in and out of your drives. If you have a trailer in tow, it’s impossible - in fact impassable!


There is also concern about difficult or impossible access for emergency services. People suffering cardiac arrest, strokes, falls etc can’t wait hours for the roads to clear themselves.


So that we have a true idea of how this impacts you and how you feel about it, we would like you to contact us with your views and stories. Details are on the letter (and the contact page here).


Armed with detailed evidence we are in a better position to talk to the organisations or groups who cause these problems. We will be able to give instances and emphasis that magnitude of concern that has been generated. All submissions will remain anonymous in line with our data protection rules.


We need your views so we can represent you!
